Alexia Camfield bringing you Both Sides of the Couch

So with Fall in full swing I know my calendar is feeling a bit tight and I wanted to refresh on some of the key strategies for increasing productivity.  Each of us has the same 24 hours in a given day and how we manage this resource greatly impacts our quality of life and success at the goals that are important to us.   The tips I am about to share with you will not literally manifest more hours in your days but will hopefully help you get the most out of the hours you do have. 

Habits of Productive People:

  1. Schedule in a calendar.  This is the number one tip.

A Note for College Students:

So many of my clients and children of my clients have left for college.  My oldest daughter made this big launch a few years ago.  This exciting time of transition sparked me to review tips and resources for success in college that you can find here.  Transitioning to college is a big step. I think the top piece of advice I would have for anyone is to remember that there is a learning curve at this juncture and it is completely normal to have challenging emotions during the first semester of adjustment.  Identify who is in your support system access help as soon as you need it.

Find what inspires the change you seek!
